After smuggling his nephews out of the Subotica ghetto, an uncle could find no one that was willing to hide and care for them for more than a day or two at a time. Finally, he asked a priest, who recommended a pious Christian woman- Klara Baic. Klara, a single mother and housekeeper, accepted the boys into her humble home. She risked her life and the life of her daughter to hide and care for these boys from May 1944 till the liberation of the area on October 1944.
One of the boys later recalled, “Klara shared everything with us and did everything to save us.” She took this decision to shelter the boys despite the warning of severe punishment for those found to be sheltering Jews.
Yad Vashen recognized Klara Baić as Righteous Among the Nations in 2007.
This 8x10" print with archival paper and inks is mailed in a cellophane sleeve with chip board backing to prevent bending, and a paragraph about her story.
The women in my “Heroes & Strangers” portrait series were selected because of their courage and bravery during World War II. There are thousands of stories like theirs; ordinary men and women being extraordinary lights during dark times.
To the faces of their rescued, they are heroes. To most of us, just generations apart, they are strangers at worst, forgotten at best.
My hope is that those who see these portraits memorize their names, know their faces, and are inspired by their stories to find courage for these present times.
